Tour of Albuquerque on the ABQ Trolley

ABQ Trolley CarI’ve written about the Albuquerque Trolley before, but from time to time I have to remind my readers about how great the Trolley Tour of Albuquerque actually is. I also need to tell my not-yet-arrived guests that I have tickets for the ABQ Trolley Company’s Tour of Albuquerque right here at our Albuquerque Bed and Breakfast, so you may add them to your stay and save a few dollars off the street price in Old Town.

The Trolley Tour is the best first thing to do in Albuquerque. The tour is jam packed full of interesting minutia, hard core facts, delightful anecdotes as well as general information and history of the Duke City. I took the tour last year and wrote a detailed blog about it here if you would like to read it. Otherwise, be surprised! Our tour consisted of all the Albuquerque Bed and Breakfast owners, their friends and family, and not one person in our group could say they didn’t learn something new and interesting about our hometown.

It’s not just for touristas!

Albuquerque natives Jesse and Mike have a passion for this, folks. It was all their brainchild and it definitely shows. They had the Trolley custom built, in all its southwest glory, just for this purpose and it is the best way to learn about Albuquerque, bar none. You had better think twice about passing up on this opportunity to know Albuquerque like a local, or better.

ABQ Trolley Tickets at Adobe NidoI have ABQ Trolley tickets for my guests here at Adobe Nido Bed and Breakfast. The cost is $22.00, which is a $3 savings from getting your tickets when you board. The tour leaves from Old Town only, and meanders on and off Route 66 all the way up to Nob Hill, just past the University of New Mexico, and back down again, traveling off the beaten path through historic neighborhoods that most Burqueños don’t know about.

If you are living in Albuquerque and you haven’t done the ABQ Trolley Tour yet, I have to say…why not? This tour is great for a date night or for a group of friends looking for something different to do. It is also a great way to entertain out of town guests. Come on by and get some tickets!
